Betty - if Edward is telling you it's a bogus dive you're not in the right dive location. Where are you trying to dive?

According to the walkthrough = I have sailed to Palau and chosen ISC No. 1 for this first dive - I think I will go back to the automap and check to be sure I chose the right place - thanks for the hint.
Love, Betty Lou

Thanks Syd, it helps to be in the right place!!!
Now, I have returned after taking my 5 pictures and am in the Angel Shark pool area downstairs....walkthrough says I am supposed to get a video from Jean-Michel - have waited around down here but nothing happens, so returned to the bridge and thought I would be alerted to an incoming video but NOT - am I supposed to go looking for it or have I not done something else I need to - Don't I have to transfer those pictures to the picture album or analyze them or something? HOW?
Love, Betty Lou

I am not sure what is supposed to happen next or what I am supposed to do - I am hanging out up here on the bridge, have checked Edward and the 5 photos are in the album, have clicked on each one and done bioanalysis but don't get the results (just asked to return is available) and don't know where they should be transferred to anyway....no video from J-M or anyone else....now what?
Love, Betty Lou

Betty if you didn't get an option to send the info to Capucci then one or more of the pictures weren't identified correctly.

The video you are talking about from Cousteau is random - it just gives you another dive. Sometimes you'll get it, sometimes you won't. Don't worry about it - it's not important to finishing the game.

I simply don't understand me - the reason I am sticking with this game is that I LIKE IT! even though I haven't a clue what to do or how to do it - and even with the walkthrough I am stumped as to how to accomplish the described task some of the time - Go figure....
I do have a question - I am on DIVE 2 and have to take 9 pictures....are the last 3 all of the moray eel? Or only the last 2 = there is a fish or two before the eel that I have not been able to get a photo of and that 3rd picture of the eel is when my 'sled' gets damaged, I end up back onboard and get chastised and have no pictures so have to do it again = any suggestions?

I looked at my notes and unfortunately didn't write down what the pictures were so I don't know how many of what you need to take. You can't stop the sled from being damaged - that's just part of the game. But you should have the pictures you already took, if memory serves and just need to go back to that one location and take whatever pictures you missed. For some reason I seem to remember taking multiple pictures of the manta ray but I could be wrong.

I finished it for the same reason - as buggy and as big as a pain in the neck this game was - it was interesting. Also at the time I played it, I was a big Cousteau fan.

OK syd, and thanks. I thought that because I allowed the sled to get damaged by hanging out too long with that moray that I did not have the pictures I needed, will have to try again and forge ahead even after getting bawled out - thanks
Love, Betty Lou

I have been having trouble with each dive and my final analysis of each - the walkthrough tells me that I should end up with a list of keywords but in some cases I get 3 words out of 4 or whatever instead of EXACTLY what I am supposed to get -
Up to now I have forged ahead with rest of analyses and transfering to either E or A but this Alert Dive is giving me a headache:
I got 4 pictures, came up to bridge and talked to Ed, went to Data storage and looked for Shinkoku, did Bio-analysis process (except on #4 the skull, no analysis available), my bio results were 12% and got keywords BOMBS HAILSTONE TRUK WRECKS - when I go to the WEB and search each keyword I got only Truk and The People Of Truk, but get "unsuccessful" on the other 3 words - so do not get any info on explosions, wrecks in Truk Lagoon or anything else I need to get more coords to sites - what am I doing wrong?
Love, Betty Lou
P.S. Still love this game, just getting annoyed and frustrated again.

How are you entering the words into the web? When you do a search are you putting a plus sign between each word?

Sounds like you're doing the Braddy Dive - the Alert dive should have given you nothing since the water was too polluted for an analysis.

If you still can't get it to work - send me a save and I'll take a look at it. It's just been too many years between me and this game.

If memory serves the saves are in the windows file not in a save game file.

Have sailed off to other places and love those underwater dives and picturetaking tasks, BUT have a bit of a techie prob here - and think I read about similar prob somewhere for this game - am trying to set sail for Eten (do not remember if/when the coords were downloaded by Edward) and keep getting an 'error message' and dumped back to my desktop - I will try backing up to an earlier save (makes for a lot of stuff to do over what with the photo analysis/transfer procedures) but maybe this will correct my stuckness.....any suggestions you can add? Or do you know how others solved this problem?
Love, Betty Lou

I do not understand how this game could run just fine with the required color settings up to this point and then just quit working - Now I cannot get the game to run at all, keeps giving me error message - do you think it would run OK on my other computer which has WIN95 (I have WIN98 on this one)? And do I then have to start all over from the beginning? Phooey! mad

Betty this game is buggy - i think you're at the spot Mad was at when she had to quit. I played the game on an older computer and I remember it crashed a few times but I managed to get through it - I don't know if it's a speed problem or not. Try it on your W95 and maybe even use Turbo or another slow down utility. You can transfer your saves over so you don't have to start from scratch. Good luck.

I'mmmmmmm back.....have installed this on my W95 with no trouble, have not been successful in transferring my saved games (this game does not put them where you think they would be, and the place it does put them I have inserted my saves but they do not show up in my list in the game - so have decided to try to replay it and forget those saves, just see if/how long it will run on this computer and if there will be any problems with it.....good thing I have good notes on this one, will make it easier to redo what I had already done before.....thanks for any and all help...
Love, Betty Lou

a brief update - this game is WONDERFUL! plays perfectly (up to now, knock on wood) and even the dives are going smoother with WIN95 - I swear most of the conversations (now) have added stuff that did not appear with WIN98 and wonder how that is possible, then again maybe it is my imagination and my 'old' rememberer....
I'm dumping my saves from first time around with WIN98 as I cannot make them work with WIN95 and it is too frustrating to keep trying.....on my way to Dive #3 now....see ya later if I get stuck again
Love, Betty Lou laugh
